True and Deepest Love

Love…
…makes me unafraid with you. I’m at peace when I drift off to sleep with you next to me knowing that you’d protect me with all that you are, even to death if it was required. I would do the same for you without a second thought.

American drama critic and editor George Jean Nathan
9B6580E32ACFE821162F51A3C7C61A man reserves his true
and deepest love
not for the species
of woman
whose company
he finds himself
electrified and
enkindled,
but for that one
in whose company
he may feel
tenderly drowsy.
